Hendricks Gin Brunch!!

Well after days of being laid up feeling like death warmed up, I finally started feeling a little better on Tuesday, although if I'm honest now probably not as well as I should have been before embarking on Wednesday!

On Wednesday I was invited along to a brunch hosted by Hendricks Gin, along with lots of other wonderful ladies from the vintage website and blogging world! Sounds good, oh yes people I was there.

Sadly my camera broke the other night so I've had to steal pictures from several lovely ladies, namely Gemma from Retrochick, Natasha from Natasha BailieVintage and the very lovely Margaret from Pennydreadful. So the pictures are particularly good as I didn't take them!!

This is me, Katie from What Katie Did and Gemma from Retrochick, as the morning started, so we're all still sober!



It was an early start for gin, but hey I'm never put off having a gin cocktail just because my watch tells me it's 10.45am!! We started off with a Red Snapper, and the day slowly descended into Gin drinking debauchery, oh ok, we just talked a lot and perhaps too loud towards the end!

This was a great event as I not only got to catch up with some friends but met some new ones too, as I said in my previous post about meeting all sorts of vintage types from all walks of life, this was a great opportunity to do so!

Anyway first up, I love how Hendricks represent themselves, actually I love the gin too which is weird as I have NEVER been a gin drinker. It was Fleur mentioning it that first made me think, you know what I'm going to try that, I loved it, damn her! But I also love how Hendricks go about things, check out Hendrick's Horseless Carriage of Curiosities, how cool is that?!



Here's Gemma from Retrochick, Naomi from Vintage Secret, Me and Margaret from Pennydreadful.



Probably the best car boot in the world, who wouldn't love this ready made cocktail bar in your boot?



The lovely Fleur from Diary of a Vintage Girl and Katie.




And me with one of my favourite ladies, Natasha from Natasha Bailie Vintage!


And last but certainly not least the lovely chap who spent the day mixing cocktails for us ladies!


It was a really nice day and I felt very lucky to be invited, thanks Hendricks! It's not often you can spend the day drinking cocktails chatting with friends old and new and I'm happy to have had the opportunity to do so!

It looks so wonderful! Sort of an adults Alice in Wonderland. Num num num. I do chocolate any time of day, so it is really no different to drinking in the morning!

Oh what fun! You look like you ladies had such a good time!

"Adults in Wonderland" perfect description!

Glad you are feeling better, STM, it's awful to be sick...

Retro Chick said...

Ah it was a fabulous place, I would like to move in and live there permanently!

Lovely to see everyone :D

Fiona - I'll bet the combination of the gin and good friends did wonders for your health!

You are so lucky to have a group of vintage-loving friends who live close by. I'm thinking that there must be at least a handful of women in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota area who would love these kinds of get-togethers. I just have to find them! Thanks for the inspiration...

Looks like you had a great time. I don't like gin myself, but I do like that Hendrick's Horseless Carriage of Curiosities!

Oh, hurrah! A pic of the hairset I did on Naomi.
